BGA LIST OF WAYPOINTS

AND SITES OF BGA MEMBER CLUBS

AMENDMENT 19 TO THE 1997 LIST (AL 19/97)

DATED 15th MARCH 2016

Definitive List. The definitive BGA list including the latest updates and any `Stop Press' items can be accessed through a link from the BGA web site: http://www.gliding.co.uk.

The list is held at: http://www.newportpeace.co.uk/turningpoints.htm and can be accessed directly through this web reference.

Responsibilities. The BGA has prepared this data in good faith but takes no responsibility for its accuracy or how it is used, for instance use by pilots in airborne navigation systems. Users are advised to check such data, in particular for proximity to other air activities or areas with airspace restrictions.

Airspace. Points with airspace considerations are identified by the symbols hash (#) and exclamationmark (!). Asingle hash # warns of proximity to restricted or sensitive airspace (mentioned in the Remarks column), and in Competitions or other Organised Task Groups, task setters should use these points with care.

Points with a double hash ## are particularly sensitive and should only be used if the organisation responsible for the airspace has agreed that the point may be used for the flight; this includes some BGA club sites and nearbyWPs used for starts and finishes.

The exclamation mark symbol (!) is for WPs that are assessed by the BGA Competitions Committee as not suitable for use in Competitions or by other Organised Task Groups. In the complete WP table in Excel format, WPs with #. ## and ! Symbols are in red letters, those with ! have a light pink cell background, so that the Excel "sort" function can be used to separate out these points if required.

PART 1 - IMPORTANT CHANGES

Important factual changes including corrections or changes of grid refs and deletion of points that should no longer be used.

INE(Inverness East) Delete - Reason, close to sensitive airspace at Inverness Dalcross airport
INV (Inverness) - Move INS to 57 30.086N 004 14.075W, further up the A9 because the present point is right on the ILS centreline to Inverness Dalcross airport.
KET (Kettering) - Delete - Reason, it is less than 1km from KES, Kettering S, a much more visible point.
